Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My father passed away suddenly in july 2017. It hit us hard as he was only 62, fit and healthy. February of this year I was hit by the benefit cap resulting in a loss of £120 per week. My rent is not covered and is now unaffordable. I have a job starting soon but as I have been unable to cover the rent my landlord has started eviction proceedings. Local council cannot help not until the bailiffs are at my door and myself and my 3 children are on the streets. I really do not want to put my children through this as they have been through enough witnessing violence and suicide attempts from their father, then losing their grandad. I am hoping that I can raise enout for a deposit for a new home in a new area and will be starting employment before bailiffs arrive. This is not a sob story but a cry for help as there is no help out there for my, worried for my children. Thankyou very much for reading, every little counts 🤗
